"Low" as written by and David Charles/faragher Lowery....
Sometimes I want to take you down
Sometimes I want to get you low
Brush your hair back from your eyes
Take you down let the river flow

Sometimes I go and walk the street
Behind the green sheet of glass
A million miles below their feet
A million miles, a million miles

[Chorus]
I'll be with you girl
Like being low
hey hey hey like being stoned
I'll be with you girl
Like being low
hey hey hey like being stoned

A million poppies gonna make me sleep
Just one rose and knows your name
The fruit is rusting on the vine
The fruit is calling from the trees

Hey don't you want to go down
Like some junkie cosmonaut
A million miles below their feet
A million miles, a million miles

[Chorus]

Blue blue is the sun
Brown brown is the sky
Green green of her eyes
A million miles a million miles

Hey hey don't you want to go down
Like some disgraced cosmonaut
A million miles below their feet
A million miles, a million miles

[Chorus]

    General CommentI have listened to this song a ton of times, and I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of it. It is about a guy who has an addiction to narcs, probably heroin, which he describes in several places. Sometimes "he walks the street behind of green sheet of glass" refers to him walking around while high and feeling completely separated from all the hustle and bustle around him. All the references to being "low" are just another adjective to describe the high, where you are so calm and relaxed and cocooned that you are operating at an existence much lower than everyone else. So low that you are "a million miles below their feet".

    Anyways, a new love has come into his life. This girl doesn't do that stuff, and sometimes he wishes she did it with him, asking her "don't you wanna go down? / a million miles below their feet?" But he still is very happy with her despite her choice to stay away from the drugs. In fact, being with her is comparable to tthe high he feels.

    General CommentThe disgraced cosmonaut is a reference to Major Tom. I can't believe nobody said this. You know, David Bowie's, "Space Junkie" strung out on heaven's high.

    General CommentReally osm song it makes me wanna go get stoned, but i think he's talking about a girl(of course) that's his girlfriend maybe or special to him and how she makes him feel, she's prolly like a down-to-earth girl who's really cool. i don't know why it's being low, maybe someone can help us out.

    General Commenta million poppies gonna make me sleep? uhhhhhh heroin maybe? and back in the day getting stoned originally refered to the high that heroin gives and not smoking weed. And being truly in love is a lot like being all smacked out.
